Load audio player
Spanish Formula 1 and MotoGP fans have been able to enjoy three open races during this 2022 season, one in the four-wheeled premier class and two others in the motorcycle world championship.
They were all broadcast on Telecincoafter acquiring the rights media play and again, except in Aragón, which was TVE, as has happened in recent years, F1 was widely watched and followed more than MotoGP.
The 2022 Spanish GP, the only “free” race for any F1 fan in our country, was watched by a total of 1,725,000 spectators on Sunday. This meant a share of 15.4% (screen sharing). It was a small drop from the same Montmeló run in 2021, which, despite having a 14% share, reached 1,839,000 television viewers.
Telecinco broadcast two of the MotoGP races held at our circuits this year, the Spanish GP which took place in Jerez in May and the Aragon GP which took place on September 18 at Motorland Aragón.
The Jerez race was followed on TV by 1,164,000 viewers who, yes, achieved a 16.6% share. And despite the return of Marc Márquez as the world championships started to heat up, the Aragon GP was followed by just 823,000 open viewers, giving TVE an 11.1% audience share. .
This data from Aragon represents a drop in following from the 2021 race, which 957,000 spectators saw openly on Mediaset. However, the other quote from last year that could be viewed for free, the San Marino GPwith its 960,000 spectators, did not reach the numbers that Jerez has reached this year.
In any case, to compare the monitoring of F1 and MotoGP, it is also necessary to take into account the number of people who have followed the races on the payment platforms. Thus, the 2022 F1 Spanish GP was seen by 729,000 viewers between DAZN F1 (489,000) and the Vamos channel (240,000), the 2022 MotoGP Spanish GP was watched by 195,000 viewers on DAZN and the GP of Aragon on Sunday, 174,000 viewers.
In the MotoGP of Spain, it should be noted that 36,500 people watched it on Twitch, on the channel of a well-known youtuber and streamer, TheGrefg.
That is to say, even taking the most-watched open race of the 2022 MotoGP season as an example (which, to be fair, was also the same month as the F1 season), there are over half a -million tracking difference. between the two highest categories of their disciplines. A very graphic example of the golden age that F1 has recovered since 2021 and the slump that MotoGP has given lately.
